On December 31, 1931 — Two pitchers changes the color of their socks, when Boston sends forkballer Milt Gaston to Chicago in exchange hard-thrower Bob Weiland.

Gaston will go 21-48 for the White Sox and retire after 3 seasons with the club. Weiland doesn’t fare any better going 15-35 for Boston over 3 seasons. He will miss the 1936 season and come back and go 41-37 over 4 seasons with the St Louis Cardinals.
